The Trust

Why do people lie? Is it for the attention or maybe they just want what they can't have? Or maybe they're afraid of telling the truth, afraid of the consequences. And why are people so selfish? Do they not care so much that they block out what they dare not see? Are their wants really much more important than everyone else around them? OR are they just that greedy?

Really, what is with people today? Do they not care how lies and selfishness can impact those nearest to them. those who care about them, those who love them. And if it's not lying or being selfish, they use people or they're in denial about their life. They use people for their own selfish purposes, never thinking of the consequences until it's too late. These are the people that surround me and you.

Reality is an illusion. One that we as people trust and believe in, only to learn that trusting someone can make us vulnerable. It can make us weak and cause us to lose track of who we really are.

So for many of us, we turn to stories and bury ourselves into a fantasy world through books and writing in hopes that we never have to face reality even if in truth it's for a few minutes or hours.

But, there will come a time when we to put down that book and look past the illusion. We have to find ourselves and move forward. We have to learn to trust once again.
